About this book
Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India, Hon'ble Smt. Panabaka Lakshmi releasing the book of Professor Mishra
Pioneering surgeon Prof. Dr. RK Mishra has a clinical approach and incisive style that puts this book in a class of its own and makes it a necessary part of every surgeon's and gynecologist's library. This second edition is also enhanced by thousands of illustrations and additional four DVDs to demonstrate laparoscopic views for the surgeon. Textbook of Practical Laparoscopic Surgery defines the total set of general surgery, gynecology, urology and pediatric procedures that can be performed by the any minimal access surgeon. It is with the reading of books the same as with looking at pictures; one must, without doubt, without hesitations, with assurance, admire what is beautiful.
Read not to contradict and confute...nor to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider. This book is based on seven year of teaching experience of author in minimal access surgery. Within seven year Prof. Mishra has trained more than 2500 surgeons from almost all the country of world and he has found a common lack of basic principles in them. Even advanced laparoscopic surgeons lack basic principles of minimal access surgery. There are many good books on laparoscopic surgery but Textbook of Practical Laparoscopic Surgery takes a more practical, condensed approach for when you don't have time to learn laparoscopic skill and theory. A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it. In fewer than 602 pages, this book guides you through the process of developing a foundation of laparoscopic surgery like developing skill of dissection, suturing, knotting and tissue approximation techniques. The second section of this laparoscopic book describe comprehensive laparoscopic surgical and gynecological operative procedures demonstrating a method that is tested, proven, and based upon sound instructional theory of minimal access surgery.
Prof. Mishra's Mishra Knot was published in World Journal of Laparoscopic Surgery in 2007 and since then hundreds of surgeon all over world is using Mishra's Knot.
The Foreword of this book is written by world leeder of laparoscopic surgery Prof. Steven D. Wexner (USA) and by Dr. Ray L. Green President of World Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons, USA. The Publisher of book is J.P Brothers Pvt ltd. The largest medical book publisher of Asia. This textbook was therefore undertaken to put in detail expositional practical aspect of laparoscopy that the thoughtful clinician needs to know.
This book is unique in the world because it is single authored and cover 602 pages and more than 1500 illustrations. The four Instructional DVDs are provided with this book contains 20 PowerPoint with hundreds of Videos linked. The power points and Videos in DVD cover everything any surgeon ever wants to know about the art and science of laparoscopy in general surgery, paediatric surgery, urology and gynaecology.
Everything is presented in an organized format that makes even the hardest tricks of laparoscopy easy to understand. The name of the author is the first to go followed obediently by the title, the plot, the heartbreaking conclusion, the entire novel which suddenly becomes one you have never read, never even heard of.
This is a truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity, and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon, and by moonlight. I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little further down our particular path than we have yet got ourselves. The book is present in most modern format available today.

Review of book
This book provides an invaluable study aid for all general surgeons, paediatric surgeon, urologist and gynaecologists who wants to learn art and science of laparoscopic surgery. Concisely written overviews of each topic covered on the minimal access surgery combined with the illustration and videos with a new and innovative approach is surprising. I think the book does a good job of covering practical minimal access surgical issues and I don't think any of the surgical subspecialties have been neglected. Also, the length is ideal. I think the topics covered are excellent, and I felt the images were great.
